Fowler & Holden

“This investment has helped us to safeguard the jobs of 25 people and create 12 new roles in the industry. FW Capital were very helpful and we greatly appreciate their support.”

Tim Brooksbank, Director, Fowler and Holden

Dating back over a century, Fowler and Holden operates a foundry, machine shops and a fabrication facility across its 20,000 square feet Grimsby site.

With its core business being manufacturing and machine castings for large national civil engineering customers, it boasts a local and specialist client-base. F&H also undertakes machining and fabrication, with a focus on large and heavy gauge machining and fabrication.

The business secured an investment from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, as part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund in April 2021, which was soon followed by a second round of funding totalling £500,000.

Thanks to the investment, the business has been able to secure 25 jobs and plans to create a further 12 positions across the next two years.

The first NPIF investment phase has now completed with the British Business Bank launching the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund II in March 2024.
